The Comprehensive Collection Of Historic Blues
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 02/07/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"SOUTHERN COUNTRY BLUES Vol.1 * Down In Boogie Alley consists of 48 songs on three CDs. Included with disc #1 is an informative 20 page booklet that's easy on the eyes; it features many vintage photos. The rare recordings span the years 1927 to 1940, with each disc specific to a particular southern region.

Sound quality of the original 78s is generally OK-- some tracks have surface noise or other imperfections, but there's no oppressive filtering applied. The famous are here as well as the obscure; all perform in the traditional blues style. This set belongs in every serious blues afficianado's collection.

DISC ONE (Memphis & the Mississippi Delta) -- 49:59
DISC TWO (Alabama & the Eastern States) -- 42:22
DISC THREE (South & the Mid Western States) -- 52:55"
